The Film-Philosophy Conference 2019 at the University of Brighton invites proposals for presentations on any subject related to film and philosophy. There is no single overall theme. The track system provides a number of broad headings to which a presenter may wish to attach their submission. There is, of course, an Open track if you feel that your paper does not fit within any of the other tracks.
The tracks for 2019 are:
- Emotion and Affect
- Environment and the Screen
- Film cultures online (blogging, social media, podcasting)
- Film-Philosophy and Education
- New Technologies in/of Cinema
- Philosophy of Fiction
- Politics and Film-Philosophy
- The Film-Philosophy Canon
- Video Essays
We only accept individual proposals for presentations of 20 minutes.
We do not accept group panel proposals except for Workshops.
The track system allows for papers to group organically around common themes and approaches.
We are open to workshops that have alternative and innovative formats that provoke discussion and debate. If you have any ideas for a workshop – in format or content – please contact the conference director (D.Llinares@brighton.ac.uk) before submitting an official abstract via the website.
All abstracts will be considered by at least two members of the conference committee and decisions will be announced in March 2019.
Accommodation information is available on the conference website.
